-800-steph-1-2 the phone number toll free from anywhere. julie in seattle who just sent us a boat load of christmas stuff. cheeses, ginger bread house -- thank you julie! >> i'm totally a whore for cheese. >> stephanie: julie says expert who begs to differ with you ingreat staff. there are psych professionals like your friend and like dr. davies below who are saying that certain people are vulnerable. dismissing the ridiculous amounts of graphically depicted violence in this culture is unhelpful, because parents of kids like lanza must accept that is possible. oh, i have another jacki is wrong email. and look who joins us now, jacki schechner. >> go for it. >> stephanie: grandma deb writes, what? jacki is missing the point. it doesn't make people commit crimes. it just desensitizes them to violence. watching something that incorporates humor such as pulp fiction, is different. there are lots of people who drink alcohol but that doesn't mean they are all alcoholics. dr. davies says there are no numbers, but so personalities might not fully understand that people
